William Gaddis (1922–1998) is one of America’s most highly regarded writers, described by the New York Times Book Review as “a presiding genius . . . of postwar American fiction.” He is the author of the novels The Recognitions, J R (both Dalkey), Carpenter’s Gothic (Penguin), A Frolic of His Own (Scribner), and the posthumously published Agapē Agape (Penguin), as well as the 2002 essay collection The Rush for Second Place (Penguin). Both J R and A Frolic of His Own won the National Book Award; the latter was also a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Gaddis received a MacArthur award, and his work has been the subject of numerous critical studies.
